Width: 9"   Length: 9.25"

Materials/Techniques: Machine pieced, machine quilted.

Artist's Statement: One of the first indications my family had that my sister Judy was having memory problems was when my other sister Donna noticed Judy having difficulty learning and remembering her part in songs for a quartet in which they both sang. The quartet was known as “Family Harmony”.

The central quilt block is called “Harmony” and the four corner blocks represent the members of the quartet. The overlay on one of the corner blocks is to signify my sister fading away.

Dedication: To my sister Donna, who alerted us to changes in Judy’s memory and behavior that ultimately led to her diagnosis of Alzheimer’s-type dementia. I also dedicate this to my family, who rallied together harmoniously to support Judy and each other in a very difficult time.

This quilt is displayed with Fast Finish Triangles.

This quilt earned $60.00 for the AAQI.
